In a world where subjectivism and liberalism has overcome hard reality you may wish yourself to be Sinbad the Sailor and while you will never actually become Sinbad – in our foolish world the public must accept your assertion or be charged with discrimination followed by prosecution.
This is America today – except in Kentucky. A remarkable women, a stalwart for what is right, a heroine for conscience and a women of biblical convictions has done what we should all be doing. She has said no to the Sodomites who would subvert the very will and counsel of the Living God.
In a wonderful article entitled “Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis is the Only One Obeying the Law” written by Bryan Fischer, the reasons Kim Davis is well within the law and her own powerful religious convictions are clearly illuminated.
Fischer writes, “A corollary to the maxim that we are a nation of laws is that we are decidedly not a nation of “rulings.” A court ruling is not a “law,” it is a “ruling.” It may have the force of law due to the abject acquiescence of a meekly compliant people, but it is not a law. A “law” is not a “law” unless it is enacted according to constitutional procedure. Under our Constitution, courts have no power to make or change law, none whatsoever.”
One person among those who camped out in Rowan County Clerk’s office was heard asking the question if Kim Davis “has God spoken to you” about not issuing marriage licenses?
This is a loaded question, but among the liberal class, it will find no answer that they will ever accept, or see, or entertain, even remotely.
The truth is that God has spoken to Kim Davis and to anyone else in our nation who is willing to hear him. It does not matter how long ago that Christ said marriage is between one man and one woman – the laws of God are established forever. Davis heard it and unlike many in today’s squirming apostate churches she is going to obey it. She knows that long after the Sodomites have been judged and the wishy washy have been rebuked the word of the Living God will prevail – along with Clerk Davis.
“For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.” (1Pet 1: 24-25)
It is not only the laws of God that sodomites refuse or fail to understand, but it is the nature of marriage that both heterosexuals and homosexuals misunderstand.
Marriage licenses do not make a marriage as in the line from Glen Campbell’s famous “Gentle on My Mind”
“And it’s knowing I’m not shackled,
By forgotten words and bonds,
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line”
It is the third party of the marriage that sanctifies a marriage. The third party is God. It is not how we are married as in the air, underwater or in a blast of purple and green confetti and feathers. It is not the witnesses or the authority of the county or state, it is always and only God.
God never opposes himself. If sodomy was declared sinful and an abomination in the ancient world; that declaration is eternal. This is another way of saying, God cannot bless what is cursed and forbidden. Not now, not ever.
Even while writing this article Kim Davis was arrested by U.S. Marshals under order from District Judge David Bunning for contempt of court.
We must stand with and pray for this brave woman who is standing with the word of her Lord and Savior.
There are millions of believers who also hold this ruling and the court that issued it in contempt – will Bunning arrest them all?
With or without a county issued marriage license Sodomites will never be married in Gods eyes.
We have been well warned and even if no impediments or substantive resistance seems to matter in the issue of “same sex marriage’ it will see its day.
“Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” (Ec 8: 11)
My former pastor used to tell me that you can’t break the word of God – you can only break yourself against it.
Our nation is literally breaking itself to pieces by its headlong plunge into everything prurient and perverted. This day will end and another will prevail. To wit:
“And he beheld them, and said, what is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner? Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.” (Lu 20: 17-18)
